MassResistance has filed a "taxpayer lawsuit" by 31 citizens across the state against the Governor's Council, including the Governor and the Lt. Governor, citing serious constitutional and procedural issues in the way they approve judges. This is also in preparation to file an order to stop the swearing-in of a left-wing activist nominee recently approved.
In recent years Massachusetts has become infamous for its activist anti-family judges. Some well-known cases include the groundbreaking 2003 Goodridge ruling that forced same-sex "marriage" on the state, and the 1995 South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade case granting the "right" to a homosexual group to march in a parade against the wishes of the organizers. (The pro-family group lost on every level in the state courts -- then won 9-0 in the US Supreme Court!)
The era of partisan, activist judges has only accelerated with the present governor, Deval Patrick. For example, he has nominated three high-profile lesbian activists who have become judges:
Cheryl Jacques (2008) as an Industrial Accidents Board (IAB) judge. (Jacques previously ran the national homosexual group Human Rights Campaign.) Maureen Monks (2009) to Middlesex Probate and Family Court Barbara Lenk (2011) to the Supreme Judicial Court
On July 18, the Council held a hearing for Kenneth Salinger, nominated by the Governor to be a Superior Court judge.
Salinger, currently an assistant attorney general (one of about 300), would be a pro-family citizen's nightmare. Salinger has given thousands of dollars to the radical left-wing activist group MoveOn.org, to the pro-abortion group EMILY'S List, and to various prominent left-wing pro-abortion politicians across the country.
